Community reporting thresholds: sharing information with authorities concerning violent extremist activity and involvement in foreign conflict: a UK replication study

The first people to suspect that someone is involved in acts of violent extremism will often be close to them – family, friends, community insiders. Their preparedness to report them to authorities is viewed as a key step to the prevention of violent extremism. This project will explore people’s views, experiences and concerns if they were ever faced with this scenario; the dilemma they are confronted with. “Our UK study will…include a sub-sample of white British community respondents from marginalised communities and will intentionally over-sample young people, in recognition of recent American evidence that has stated that they are ‘associate gatekeepers’ for young friends at risk of radicalisation,” said Paul Thomas, professor of youth and policy at the University of Huddersfield.
